Well done to our U14 Netball Team who beat Denbigh 3-2 in their first league game of the season. It was double celebrations for Captain Tudy as it was also her birthday! Well done to all the girls who put in a great team performance to secure the win.

Our Year 7 Brooklands Netball Team participated in their first fixture last week against Kents Hill Park School.

The 1st quarter set the tone for the close game it would be, with the teams drawing 1-1. This continued until late into the 2nd quarter, where KHP took a 5-2 lead. Our girls came out strong in the 3rd quarter bringing it back to 5-4. This remained the score, with neither team being able to finish some hard earned shots.

Well done to all the girls on a thrilling end-to-end game! A special well done to Thara for Managers Player and Fatema for Players Player.

Our current YR11 Rugby squad have contributed massively to our trophy cabinet during their years at Walton High. They have been regular winners of both leagues and tournaments and last year, as U15’s, they won the prestigious Bucks County Cup that every Rugby playing school in the County yearns for.

Their last ever action in Walton High colours came at the MK Schools YR11 Tournament held at MKRFC. Their ability and quality shone through yet again to capture the title with a show of courage and strength. They beat every school they faced up to their last game which was against Ousedale. By this time, Ousedale had won all their games, except one. Walton High had the luxury of needing a minimum of a draw to win the title. It was a very closely matched game with both sides giving their absolute all. In the end, a draw was good enough and Mr Harris was, once again, justifiably proud of a very determined performance from all. He chose Harrison as his Player of the Tournament who scored a total of nine tries in true Harrison style. Baraka was voted Players’ Player by the rest of the team. He put in a stand-out performance with a pace that, in reality, no one from any opposing school could really handle.

The winning team, Harrison, Blake, Josh, Morgan, Freddie, Charlie and Baraka are pictured with Mr Harris and Cosimo, who due to an injury, was unable to play this time. As a major player in the history of this squad, he went along to support his team mates and revel in their success with them.

mkschoolsyr10badmintonTourn1819Walton High swept the board at the recent MK Schools YR10 Girls Badminton Tournament held at Lord Grey.

Two of our girls, Alysha and Charlotte, have played together many times as part of our Badminton squad throughout their time at Walton High, but this ranks as their best performance yet.

Mr Eyre said they were “brilliant and a pleasure to watch”. Their technique at times was fantastic and he could tell right from the start that they would do very well against the other schools.

It was a pity that they had to play each other in the Singles semi-final,  but that is the nature of tournaments. Mr Eyre said it was a fantastic game that Alysha eventually won. She then went on to win the title quite comfortably.

Charlotte played with Alysha in the Doubles competition and they won that too.

Terrific effort girls!

peeeOur Walnut Tree U13 Girls Football team have got something to be really proud of. They recently entered and won the EFL Cup, a tournament run by MK Dons for secondary schools in Milton Keynes.

In the group stage, they played four games before qualifying for the final, but it wasn’t easy. During the first game against Shenley Brook End they went a goal down in the first few minutes and couldn’t quite manage to pull it back. So the first game ended 1-0 and a place in the final seemed unlikely. After the defeat, the girls were straight back on the pitch again, this time against Brooklands and again they conceded an early goal. However, this time the girls battled back. They put pressure on their opponents and managed to put four goals past Brooklands and come out on top with a 4-1 win. They then went on to win the next two games 1-0 and 2-0, which secured a place in the final.

The girls were nervous and had to play Shenley Brook End once again for the title. They used the emotions of losing their earlier game as motivation. The first half was very tense, with both teams creating several chances but neither managing to secure a goal. Just two minutes into the second half, determination paid off and Nyanzobe managed to bag her eighth goal of the tournament to give a one goal lead. Each girl battled hard and played some fantastic football to secure this lead all the way to the final whistle. A 1-0 win in the final meant that, despite the rocky start, we had won the EFL girls cup, allowing each of our girls to go home with a medal and a big smile.

Each girl put in maximum effort and contributed to the win. Special mention should go to Nyanzobe who scored all eight goals for Walnut Tree!

This win also means that they have now qualified for the next round of the EFL Cup when they will represent MK Dons at the Regional stage of the competition.

A huge well done girls!
